Quick Quack
Tuesday, September 22, 2020
  • Pick up a student welcome kit with a thermometer, mask, and more in the EMU Ballroom Lobby daily from noon–8:00 p.m. through Sunday, Sept. 27. There will be other opportunities to pick up a kit on the Eugene campus; information will be sent out in future Quick Quacks.
  • Find information and support for remote classes and services at remote.uoregon.edu.
  • If you or a family member are staying in a Eugene hotel or short stay in the next couple weeks, please check your reservation as wildfire evacuees have priority for local rooms.
  • UO Transportation Services has set up new parking technology for fall, including virtual permits and app payments for hourly parking.
  • The deadline to enroll in the UO Student Health Benefits Plan is Wednesday, Oct. 7, at 5:00 p.m. For most students, this will be your last chance to enroll this school year.
  • The new COVID-19 building status map shows buildings listed in one of three categories: open, limited access, or restricted.
  • “Open” facilities will be physically unlocked at strategic entryways during the posted hours, and will be available to faculty, staff, and students for various activities.
  • “Limited access” facilities will remain locked and accessible to those faculty, staff, and students who need access through their UO ID card or via other controlled access.
  • “Restricted” facilities will remain locked but will be accessible to faculty and staff through their UO ID card or other controlled access. These facilities will be available to students by appointment only.
  • If a building is not on the map, it should be considered to have a default status of “restricted.”
  • Be prepared to show your UO ID card when accessing open facilities. UO ID cards will be required to gain entry to limited access and restricted buildings.
  • Visit the ID Card Services website for information on replacing your UO ID.
  • Designated eating areas will be established with the information posted both inside and outside to allow those wanting to avoid places where individuals are unmasked to know what is inside.
  • Some informal learning and eating areas in tents outside will be available for the first two months of the fall term.
  • Student groups hosting in-person activities will be required to complete rosters with appropriate information for contact tracing purposes.
